Colourful chocolates to beat Blue Monday

July 05, 2021

Blue Monday is claimed to be the most depressing day of the year. Don’t let this gloomy day get to you and enjoy the ultimate comfort food: these colourful modular chocolates called ‘Complements‘. A delicious treat for both the eyes and the tastebuds. 

Inspired by the complementary relationship with their clients, design agency Universal Favourite first conceptualised these little gems as an end-of-the-year gift for the people they work with. They collaborated with Bakedown Cakery to create modular staircase shapes, using 3D printing.

COLOR INFLUENCE

Undoubtedly delicious alone, the geometric forms have been specifically designed to interlock into a bite-size cube when combined with another flavour. The unexpected flavours are uniquely mouthwatering and greater than the sum of their parts. When 12 flavours were selected, it was time to decorate these little sculptures in an exuberant colour palette and painterly finishes like airbrushing, dipping and marbling, to create a natural contrast to the geometric shapes.

What is colour?

Color does not exist, but is created in our brains. In order to see color we need light, an object and our eyes. Color arises in the presence of light. Whenever light falls on an object, some of the rays are reflected by the object and the remainder is absorbed. The part that is reflected, determines the color.

Measuring colour

Color measurement devices are necessary for accurate color communication. Visual evaluation of color is subjective, affected by our memory and highly depends on the viewing conditions. Therefore, depending on the application, either spectrophotometers or colorimeters are used to accurately and objectively capture and communicate color. Even though both spectrophotometers and colorimeters are used to measure color, they work in very different ways and are used for different applications. Choosing the right color measurement device depends on your application and price range, which requires a good understanding of both technologies.
